  • “I have been going to Al for almost 13 years now. He is the only person I will allow to touch my hair and most of the time I let him decide what I should do with the cut and color. He is absolutely amazing as is the entire staff at Stella Luna! I always feel like I am a part of the family when I go there.” Melyssa A. 4/12/2013

  •  "Got a great haircut, met some great people and overall, had a great experience! Alfonso is a a true professional and knows his craft.  Even though I told him i did my own color, he didn't push the salon's services and even gave me some great advice! Scheduled my next haircut before I left and looking forward to it."  Deeanne M. 3/29/2013

  • "I could not have asked for a better experience! Called one day after spontaneously deciding to get a cut here based upon Yelp reviews, and was welcomed with open arms. LITERALLY, open arms! The staff went above & beyond to treat me like family, even as a first time customer. Alfonso quickly worked his charm and magic on me and my grown out, unstyled pixie cut, and once I left, I knew I would never have to search for another salon again! My hair LOOKED beautiful, and I FELT beautiful!  The salon is as warm and cozy as the staff that occupies it. Hopefully will return this weekend for a much needed cut!" Kimberly 2/21/2013

  • "Haven't had a decent haircut since I saw you in August!! Wish I could fly to you every 5 or 6 weeks!!" Susan S. 11/4/2012

  • "Alfonso -- Just the best. Amazing talent, amazing spirit, so much fun to be with in such an uplifting environment. It's bright and fresh and so clean, yet cozy and charming too. Like you are visiting with a great friend who has an amazing decorator and house keeper. A drama/stress free salon lives in Nyack! To go from Jersey City, NJ to Nyack, NY might seem like a drag for anything else, but when I'm coming to visit you, it's just a ride in the country that bookends a couple of hours of ME time." Catherine Z. 8/16/2012

  • "Alfonso is a genius, a true professional! He gave me one of my favorite haircuts and instinctively understood my hair type. He absolutely knows what he is doing and really listens to what you want." 5/24/2012

  • "I've trusted no one but Alfonso with my hair for the past 8 years. He's amazing! His energy, talent, style, creativity and just plain fabulousness can't be matched :) And the salon itself is sunny, pretty and full of wonderful energy and warmth. Credit for that goes to Alfonso, Grace and Stella - the adorable canine inspiration for the salon's name. You'll go for your hair, but end up hanging out, laughing and drinking coffee with new friends. Go. Now :)" Krista K. 4/21/2012

  • "I just got the best cut and color ever! I love my new look! I had the most wonderful experience at Stella Luna. Alfonso not only knows what he's doing but he took the time to explain the color process to me. I left there with dimensions of color like never before. And my cut is "sassy" according to my boyfriend. A wonderful and entertaining experience. If you don't walk in there feeling like a diva, you are sure to walk out feeling like one." Marley O. 4/20/2012
  • "My hair is difficult to work with, therefore I have to have a hairdresser that is very capable. Alfonso has been coloring, cutting and styling my hair for many years. In addition to doing a wonderful job he is also very personable. ​While I have been there I have watched Grace performing wonders on her clients’ hair. … The salon is bright, clean and just a great place to go and relax while getting your hair done." Babette G. 4/20/2012
  • "Alfonso really is as good as it gets!  He is warm, funny, super talented, and he has integrity in all that he says and does. Whatever service he performs on your hair he will make sure that you are happy. People favorably comment on my haircuts everywhere I go.  As a matter of fact, I found Alfonso by asking a woman with a great haircut 'who did her hair?'.  Since then I have gained a fantastic and talented hairdresser and a great friend. Who could ask for more?" Maria A. 3/21/2012

  • "I can only hope that Kate Middleton feels as much as a princess on her wedding day as Alfonso made us feel. I am one of the fabulous-looking ladies in Jenn P's wedding.  I was impressed with him even before we met, as Jenn was just beaming over his consistent phone consultations (she lives in Boston and us ladies live in OH, NC and Canada). Alfonso and his assistant treated us like royalty. They made getting ready so enjoyable, it ranks up there with my favorite memories of the special day. Within minutes, we were all friends sharing laughter. It made me so happy to see how much attention he gave to the bride. He not only cared about making her look great, he cared about making her FEEL as special as she deserved. Also, I was quite impressed with how well they worked with a shy, sweet little girl.  Alfonso was focused on making sure she was comfortable; asking if hairpins pinched, assuring her it's ok to let them know if something hurts. It was precious to see her start to smile in the chair, then totally LIGHT UP when she saw a princess in the mirror. I was more than impressed with my hairstyle. His creativity and attention to detail create a rare talent worth its weight in gold. A truly delightful experience all around." Charlene L. 4/25/2011

  • "Alfonso is amazing. My husband and I were married on Labor Day weekend 2010 and Al went the extra mile to make me and my ladies look fabulous! I live in Boston and he made sure my hair and color would look fantastic regardless of commute!!! :) He blew us all away with his color and up-do talents. I would recommend him and his team for any wedding or any day you want to look outrageously great! check out the link to my hair day of wedding: http://www.davidschwartzphoto.com/Weddings/brunson-parrado/Pre-Cerimony/i-MMzDPFN/1/M/_DSC8342-M.jpg. So happy. Thanks Al, you are amazing!" Jenn P. 4/5/2011

  • "I can't think of my amazing wedding day without thinking of you. Thanks for making it so perfect and being one of the highlights of my day and my life." Danielle S. 12/5/2010

  • "Alfonso is a true professional! With an eye for style and technique that would easily rival NYC's best (and most expensive) stylists, Alfonso will wow you! Beyond that he's also a warm and engaging person so you're guaranteed to have a great time while getting a great cut." Uri L. 9/11/2010

  • "I searched for you and found you. I'm so happy ... can't wait to come visit and a haircut. Oh boy am I in bad shape!" Kimmy G. 3/25/2010
